Works Ok if you can get your hands on a reasonably priced copy. Does
the same thing pretty much. I like the above though. Have to try it
Ghost is very nice. The problem is that it can not do incremental backups.
My first step is an image (ghost like), in one single CD. But after
installing things, it grows to several CDs, whereas my solution is only
another CD - and as I don't own Northon Ghost, cheaper ;-)
By the way, Ghost can copy ext2 partitions, but not reiserfs ones - at
least, so I was told. There is also another program for linux that I still
haven't tried, it's somewhere on my 'todo' list.
Pity... my cdwriter came with a copy of Nero, I think, that could create
image CDs. The "but", and a very big "BUT" is that it does absolutely
compression! My 17 Gb "C:" disk, filled to only two Gb, is copied to 24
Cds... I call that incompetence. Or maybe bussiness model :-? perhaps
they think I'll buy the comercial version... I already paid the hidden
price included with my writer, I'm not paying a second time.
